I was born in Salem, Missouri, but raised in the small town of Lesterville. Lesterville is at the forks of the beautiful Black River in Reynolds County. I was an only child so I filled my time with books, horses, and playing in the woods and the river. I attended college on volleyball scholarships at Jefferson College in Hillsboro, Missouri and then went on to Ole Miss. Upon graduating, I was hired at Three Rivers Community College. I was a very successful volleyball coach, but not so good at basketball. After leaving Three Rivers I went back to school and was working on a Masters in Guidance and counseling when I became pregnant with my son, Josh. Josh is my only child and such a joy to be around! Over the years I have worked as a bartender & manager in various places but never be returned to teaching and coaching. I had a stroke in October 2010. I was very lucky to survive! I have been disabled since then. Geneology is my new passion! I have had fairly good luck finding my maternal family. Those surnames include Counts, Hudson, & Blythe. My father's side is mostly the dreaded "Smith", Brewer, & Berryman. I have a scrapbook with some nice photos of Hudsons, Blythes, Bowdens and Waters that came from my Mom. I am very willing to share my photos as well as any information I might have. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or information to share! Donna Mae

How are you? I'm David a WikiTree Mentor. Thanks for adding profiles to WikiTree. There are reasons behind the eighth point in our Honor Code: "We cite sources. Without sources we can't objectively resolve conflicting information." A source provides a way to find out more about the person. Showing sources reduces confusion and duplicates.
Here is what our Sources help page says. It has lots of ideas: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Sources
The Sources Style Guide shows how to enter sources in the biography.
And I'm here to help too, just ask!
Thank you, David ~ WikiTree Mentor

I've learned a lot from these challenges on how to improve my own profiles... and I get to help make the shared family tree better. Everyone wins! :)
